Huntington Ingalls Industries has announced that its Technical Solutions division was awarded a contract to provide engineering, technical, repair and logistical support to the US Navy’s Coastal Riverine Forces.
The five-year, fixed-fee contract has a value of $34 million if all options are exercised. Services for Coastal Riverine Groups One and Two include contractor field team support, organizational level and intermediate level maintenance as well as hull, mechanical and electrical (HM&E), electronic and civil engineering support equipment (CESE), and material handling equipment (MHE) for specific patrol craft and support equipment. The work will be performed by Technical Solutions’ Fleet Support group, primarily in Norfolk and San Diego.
Roger Adams, the technical support department manager at Technical Solutions’ Virginia Beach office, said, “This is a result of a long and trusted relationship with the command that has allowed us to develop our personnel to meet current needs while helping them to anticipating and mitigate future challenges. It is a great partnership.”
HII’s Fleet Support group has more than 2,000 employees at 35 locations worldwide, with mobile “fly-away” teams that support emergent situations around the globe. Their expertise includes marine engineering and analysis and design services, HM&E/C4I installation and support services, and waterfront systems modernization, testing and maintenance.
